Swissvax - the early days
The history and tradition of Swissvax, a unique automotive and marine care system which even today still is hand made in Switzerland, reaches back to the 1930’s.
Like many other extraordinary and ingenious products, also the famous Swissvax waxes have originated from a kitchen table – namely the kitchen table of the Swiss family Anwander – as a product originally developed for the very own sophisticated needs of grandfather Anwander.
In these early days, the old chemist’s store of the family Anwander in Zürich served as the laboratory and the manufacturing site for the first tins of precious “Antikwachs”, a wax formulation specifically engineered and refined for the care and protection needs of antique furniture and lacquers. Since the first tins of Antikwachs, the Anwander family has dedicated all its passion, ambition and the ultimate sense for perfection to paintwork, lacquers and waxes – a continuous and strenuous pursuit for the finest products in the marketplace.
The nowadays world-renowned automotive waxes were originally developed for the exclusive private use of grandfather Anwander who – like many other successful inventors of the last century – didn’t find a product meeting his sophisticated demands on the market and therefore decided to create his own wax. This first creation was the start of the extraordinary history of a family business which has dedicated itself to the manufacture and production of the finest automotive and marine care products on the market.
What commenced as the development of waxes for paintwork care, over the years evolved to the meticulous creation of a complete automotive care line covering the needs of even the most sophisticated car enthusiast catering for leather, wood, plastic, fabric, vinyl, glass, metal, rubber, wheels and tyres. Swissvax facilitates the thorough care and durable protection of every type of surface encountered on your vehicle.
Also today, every Swissvax product is hand made in the paintwork factory of the family Anwander where wax pot per wax pot is created and poured by hand. This is a delibrate policy on our part as the highly complex and secret formulations and the sensitive valuable ingredients don’t allow for the application of industrial production processes. We also like to do it this way.
The Swissvax Philosophy
Quality is a crucially important value to Swissvax which the company considers to be fundamental to its worldwide success. The very sophisticated internal quality standards are reflected in every detail of the Swissvax care system:
From the primary products and ingredients to the manufacturing processes and quality control standards through to the finished product, its presentation, boxing and the accessories, you can see and feel and experience the quality for which many world famous Swiss products are renowned. And from a customer’s perspective you will be delighted again and again by this outstanding quality every time you use the products.
Perfection – When even the best is not good enough
We at Swissvax are convinced that even an exceptional product can still and should be refined and improved further. We never consider a product as being complete in terms of further research and development.
This entrepreneurial attitude – consequently and consistently applied over more than three generations – has led us, we believe, to market leadership in our core competences of automotive waxes and leather care.
Thanks to our continuously growing number of OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) status – including Automobili Lamborghini, Mercedes Benz Klassik, Rolls Royce and Spyker – we also feel reassured in our attitude within the very competitive automotive industry.
At Swissvax, every product is developed and meticulously tested both in the laboratory and under the harshest practical conditions. Our geographical and meteorological situation in Switzerland with its proximity to the famous unrestricted German Autobahn and 4 intensive seasons from paintwork-boiling hot summers to freezing cold winters with extensive use of road-salt offers us the best possible natural development and testing ground a company in our marketplace can look for.
Even if a product is ready for the market, we never consider research and development as completed tasks, the product has to undergo a continuous re-assessment during which it is tested and – if any potential for improvement is detected – refined. We at Swissvax never rest on the laurels we have achieved to date, each and every day we are committed to convince our customers again and again.

The ingenious Swissvax paintwork care process includes three systematic steps providing ultimate results with ease: First, the paintwork is treated with the Paint Rubber, a mineralic putty compound for the effortless removal of contaminants adhering to the paintwork surface. During the second step, Cleaner Fluid, a paintwork nourishing fluid with excellent deep cleansing characteristics, is applied and buffed leaving nothing but a perfectly clean, smooth and homogenous paintwork surface. The third step seals the paintwork with the wax of your choice chosen out of the wide range of Swissvax waxes. This Swissvax paintwork cure process is a procedure which has been meticulously perfectioned over decades resulting in the ultimate Swissvax finish and the most intense gloss captivating users all over the world.
